Abstract:

"This book owes its inception and much of its organization to the writer's experience in teaching a course on "Industrial Sociology" for several years at The Pennsylvania State College. In bringing together materials for that course it became evident that modern industry has rarely been viewed as a complex social organization and pattern of relations; and in the few outstanding cases that such a view has been taken the "internal" structure of industry has not been set within the society with which it is in constant interaction. Despite numerous guides and handbooks for selecting employees or conducting industrial relations, as well as numerous texts on the formal structure of industrial management and the history of labor organizations, the functioning of the structure as a whole has received scant attention. It is this latter point of view that is emphasized in the present treatment. It is intended less to supplant than to supplement the various "standard" treatments of industrial organization and industrial relations. The view that prompts this work is that the social aspects of modern industrial organization are of the most practical sort. They are as real, and their effects as crucial, as the engineer's equations and the accountant's ledgers. The presentation has been made as compact as clarity and the range of subject-matter seemed to allow. This has been done in the interests of busy industrial and union executives and informed laymen who may find the book useful, as well as of students who must encompass many specialties and hope for a useful integration. Social scientists may find the book a suggestive summary of scattered materials. An unusually extensive list of references is appended to each chapter, in which as in the text an attempt is made to bridge fields too rarely brought together"--Preface.
